How to Unlock PDF to Allow Printing?
I am a legal representative by profession and I have to use PDF file according to my profession, but due to protection in PDF files I am unable to work in a fluent way. I need a tool which can help me to unlock my PDF files and allow me to print my PDF Document without any complication. Is there any suitable program to Unlock PDF files without creating any confusion?
It is pretty much obvious that the PDF file in question is locked with owner password protection.
In Adobe you get 2 types of password restriction to protect the PDF document, which are:
User Password: When applied, the PDF file cannot be opened unless the password is provided.
Owner Password: When applies, the PDF can be opened & viewed but printing, editing & copying becomes restricted.
How to verify if the PDF if protected with owner password protection?
There are 2 ways for verifying this:
- Check if there is a lock icon on the PDF (most probably on the left side) file, if there is click on that icon & you can see the following message
("This documents has an open password or modify password. You cannot edit, print or copy this document Permission Detail like below image")
- Open the PDF go to File >> Print >>
If the PDF if protected then you will get the following message"This printer is not allowed for secure printing".
One you have concluded that your PDF is protected with owner password protection the next step is to remove the protection. But How?
There is manual procedure available for removing printing restriction from PDF but there are some glitch:
It is lengthy process
You must be aware of the password applied
